The Best Scaffold Boards

Scaffolding is an essential part of the construction industry, and timber scaffold boards are a key component in this. Scaffold boards are commonly used on site for a range of purposes, such as providing a safe walkway on muddy ground and as kneeling boards.

Scaffold boards used in platform brackets may break during normal work activities, leading to serious accidents on site. It is important to inspect scaffold boards regularly to ensure they are in good condition and safe to use.

Grade A Scaffold Boards

For over a decade, Scaffolding Direct London has been using Grade A boards for their scaffolding projects. While these boards are of a higher quality than many other boards, they are still made fromnormal sawmill production, which typically contains between 5% and 10% of boards.

This means that, unfortunately, there is a chance that a few of them may break in use each year. Despite this, Grade A boards remain the preferred choice due to their overall durability and the fact that failures are still relatively rare.

BS Boards

BS boards are a particular standard that lays down the specification for what a timber scaffold board should be, and which are then safe to use. In addition to covering size (that is, length, width and thickness, with appropriate dimensional tolerances), it also covers the banding and marking of boards that meet the BS.


Kitemarked Boards

Kitemarked Boards has been applied to the Quality System for producing the boards, so that buyers and users can “trust” the grading and manufacturing process. And what’s more, the Kitemark is not the only Certification Mark out there.
